Boys basketball: Glasser leads Wolves to win in opener

After a bit of a rough start, Sequim’s boys basketball squad found its collective footing — and a win — in the Wolves’ season-opener.

Payton Glasser scored 32 points and Riley Cowan added six points, 12 rebounds and four steals as the Wolves overcame a seven-point halftime deficit to knock off Port Townsend 51-41 on Nov. 29.

Kaiden Parcher had 24 points for the visiting Redhawks, who looked to break open a 13-13 tie by taking a double-digit lead partway through the second quarter. Glasser worked the offensive glass to keep Sequim close, trimming the Redhawks’ lead to 29-22 after two quarters.

Sequim whittled away at the PT lead to just three, 37-34, after three quarters, before Glasser and the Sequim defense dominated the fourth quarter by a 17-4 count.

Glasser was 13-of-22 from the field, 2-of-6 from 3-point range, and added six rebounds. Teammate Nate Despain added nine points and three steals.

After a hot-shooting first half, Port Townsend (0-1) wound up hitting just 32 percent (16-of-50) from the field. PT’s Jacob Boucher had five points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in the loss.

Sequim’s junior varsity knocked off Port Townsend’s JV squad earlier in the night, 59-19.

Looking ahead

Sequim (1-0) is at North Mason on Dec. 6 and at Coupeville on Dec. 8. The Wolves host Neah Bay in a non-league contest on Dec. 12 and play a double-header (along with the SHS girls) at Port Angeles on Dec. 13. Sequim hosts Olympic on Dec. 15.
